When preparing for this day Chris said…

“Please do not make it all about my computer work. It is what I did for a living, but it does not encompass who I am. I am about loving everyone and prevention of judging and hate. That is who I am.”

And that is exactly who Chris was his entire earthly life. Everyone who spent any time with him will always remember his smile, his kindness and his wonderful generous heart.
